Terry Pools installs Locally Made Tara Safety covers. A Safety Cover is a must for many family’s with a pool strictly for the piece of mind in knowing your Family and Pets can’t accidentally fall into the pool. There are 2 main types of covers for your pool, Solid or Mesh. Mesh covers provide the safety benefits but still allow dirt, pollen and small debris to pass through. Solid covers are a full Safety cover that will not allow anything to pass through, including light. This allows your pool to be closed during the fall and remain clean and clear throughout the Winter until opening in Spring.

Safety covers are installed on your pool by anchoring to your pool deck using small anchors that are able to be submerged into the pool deck when not in use. This is a very solid anchoring system that has combined benefits of Strength, Safety, Ease of Use, and Simplicity all in one package.


For maximum safety, a Tara safety cover is the best choice. Tara’s safety covers are strong enough to support a person or group of people. A mesh safety cover will allow water to drain from the surface. Tara’s standard mesh and HD mesh safety covers are equally strong and drain water quickly. Our solid safety cover is sold with an automatic pump or a mesh drain panel to remove any standing water. Every Tara safety cover comes with heavy-duty commercial grade springs for no additional charge. For additional strength and durability, we use double layer webbing across the entire cover and each of the fabric panels has a 1″ hem around the edges. That means you get a cover that protects better and lasts longer. Every Tara pool safety cover has been independently tested to meet or exceed ASTM standards.

Both the standard mesh and HD mesh safety covers drain water quickly from the surface. Each filter the water so that leaves, debris and most particles do not fall in the pool. The HD Mesh has an extremely dense weave that filters more debris than standard mesh. The solid safety cover will not allow water or sunlight into the pool. This prevents algae growth and gives you clean, clear water in the spring. All 3 types of safety cover prevent evaporation. A anything else to fall in the pool, leaving the pool clear till spring.


Maintaining a Tara Safety Cover is not difficult. Anything that falls on the surface can be removed with a leaf blower or hose. Mesh safety covers are lighter and easier to put on and remove. They also dry quickly after being removed and can be folded easily and placed in the storage bag.  A solid safety cover will be heavier than a mesh safety cover. Keeping the surface clear of debris and standing water will make removal easier. It may also need time to dry before being folded for storage.


For a clean pool at opening, the solid safety cover is the best choice. A solid safety cover prevents all sunlight, water and debris from entering the pool. A standard mesh safety cover has a densely woven mesh that will filter most debris and blocks 96% of sunlight. The HD mesh safety cover is an extremely dense weave mesh that will filter even more of the debris and provides 99%* UV blockage.


A Tara Safety Cover not only protects your loved ones but it also protects your wallet. Using a safety cover reduces water evaporation which saves you money on replacement water.
